Dated this the 7th day of March, 2007
ORDERRevision petitioner stands convicted for the offence under Section 138 of the Negotiable Instruments Act and sentenced to undergo simple imprisonment for a period of three months and to pay a compensation of Rs.50,000/- to the complainant vide Section 357(3) of Code of Criminal Procedure and in default, to undergo simple imprisonment for two months.
2. I find that the only evidence in support of the case raised by the revision petitioner is his own testimony, which is hardly sufficient to rebut the statutory presumptions. In the circumstances, there is no scope for interference in the findings of the court below and R.P. is liable to dismissed in limine.
3. Considering the plea of the counsel for the revision petitioner, the sentence is modified to imprisonment till the rising of the court. The rest of the sentence is affirmed. Revision petitioner is granted four months' time from today CRRP951/2007 Page numbers onwards to make the payment of compensation. Revision petitioner shall appear before Judicial First Class Magistrate Court-III, Palakkad on 10.7.2007 to receive the sentence. The criminal revision petition is disposed of as above.
